Back to your canvas, add a new R/L then C/P into selection
Select none-gradient glow- add noise, and merge together

Duplicate this layer drag your original layer on top
and on your copied layer on bottom, select your copied layer
Now go to MuRa's Meisters - copies. these settings:

Drag frame below all layers Using magic wand, click inside frame
